Fly Me to the Moon | 2008 | G | - 1.2.1

3D animated feature about a young fly, who grows up hearing about the adventures of his grandfather and decides to have an adventure of his own: After convincing his two closest friends to join him, they stow away on the Apollo 11 rocket and take a trip to the moon. With Edwin E. Aldrin Jr., and the voices of Christopher Lloyd, Robert Patrick, Nicollette Sheridan, Tim Curry, Ed Begley Jr., Adrienne Barbeau, Philip Bolden, Trevor Gagnon, David Gore and Kelly Ripa. Directed by Ben Stassen. [1:25]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A male and a female fly kiss, and other male and female flies kiss. Two male and two female flies hold hands and talk about going on a date, and male and female flies dance together.
 A fly tells another fly to "Be careful, girls will be all over ya'."
 Two female flies wear short tops that reveal abdomens. Human male statues are shown bare-chested.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A plane nosedives toward the ocean but is pulled up before crashing.
 We see a chimpanzee being loaded into a space capsule and when the rocket lifts off the chimpanzee is shown screeching.
 A man grabs a fly in his hand and drops it into an ashtray (we see the fly motionless and covered with ash). A man sprays three flies with bug spray and they collapse. A man swats a fly with his hand; the fly is struck and falls to the floor, dazed. Two flies are nearly squashed under a foot. Flies are knocked into a coffee cup (we see them floating and spitting out the liquid). A glass tube with three flies in it shatters and the flies fly out unharmed. Three flies are trapped in a glass tube and try to get out.
 Flies fight: one is struck in the head and falls to the floor, one threatens another one, one head-butts another and kicks and punches are exchanged. A fly faints a couple of times. Two maggots fight over food (they tug back and forth).
 Fly parents talk about their children being missing. A mother fly says she's going to "Check on the maggots." A mother fly tells a child fly that "Flies are starving in India." There are several discussions between flies about being obese and gorging.
 Flies push a dung ball back and forth. Flies talk about eating "party mold." A woman sneezes and goo sprays out of her nose (we see a fly with a blob of goo on it). A fly burps a couple of times. A fly gets stuck in a piece of gum. We see larvae bouncing on a seesaw.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
